Outdoor Rinks & Toboggan Hills

The Town of Okotoks supports various outdoor skating rinks and tobogganing hills located on public lands throughout town. Rinks are snow cleared and flooded as resources permit on normal business days. Please stay off the ice while it is being flooded or cleared of snow. Please be courteous to other skaters and adjacent property owners. Recreational skaters have the right of way over hockey play. CSA-approved helmets must be worn when hockey sticks are in hand. The rinks are unsupervised and helmets are strongly recommended.

Tobogganing hills are inspected for hazards, but are not groomed. Unattended jumps will be removed. Helmet use while sledding is also strongly recommended. These amenities are free for public use and a great way to get the whole family active during winter.

Safety Tips

Fire Services and Municipal Enforcement would like to remind residents that there is a real danger of falling through the ice on storm retention ponds and the Sheep River due to changing water levels. Water quality and changing weather conditions, ice quality and thickness can be significantly reduced. Storm pond water/ice contact is prohibited. It is dangerous to walk, play or skate on any open bodies of water.

Is there an outdoor boarded rink with hard surface and lights in Okotoks' future?

In 2015 a 'best location' was selected for an outdoor boarded rink with hard surface and lights to be located west of the Okotoks Spray Park.  It was initially going to be located at John Paul II Collegiate but it was determined it wouldn’t fit with their expansion of portables and increased demand for parking.

An amended project business case was brought to the Town of Okotoks administration last fall and the project was B-listed. The cost of adding hard surface and lights put the project around the half million mark, a little steep for 2 months of natural ice at this time. It was decided at the time there was much better value in the Pason Centennial Arena expansion.

After the completion of the Pason Centennial Arena, and the immediate demands for indoor ice have been addressed, Town administration would then look again at the viability of this type of outdoor rink facility.
